. what's wrong with the right? thank you both for joining us. here's a guy i really expect of aei, the american enterprise institute talking about the broadcast kneltworks. i can't recall a campaign where i've seen more lying going on. and it wasn't symmetric. but it seemed pretty clear to me that the republican campaign was far more from the top. if voters are going to be able to hold accountable political figures, they've got to know what's going on. and that the story that you're telling repeatedly would be all equally to blame then you're really doing a disservice to voters and that's not what journalists are supposed to co. do very much on to the general election, take a look at this look back. >> i didn't know there was a difference between joe stalin and barnie frank. >> now, todd a irkiken talking t legitimate rape and spouting some cave man theory that sex, which is forced, cannot result in pregnancy. finally, we meet the missing link that the party cannot get in bed with the most freakish element of the right, the person hood nuts and all of this rest of this ma naj ree
night and that's what counts to a lot of us in america. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> knives out on the right. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. when a party loses an election, the knives come out. right now we're watching the night of the long knives on the right. these stories breaking tonight. right wing senator jim demint, the man behind too many failed right wing senate challengers, christine "i'm not a witch" o'donnell, richard mourdock announced today he's quitting the senate to run the hard right heritage foundation. meanwhile, in the republican house a purge is under way with speaker boehner dumping uncontrollable right wingers from prize committee assignments. they're out because they're too right. so what is too right for the republicans following the defeat this week or their defeat last month? is voting nay in the senate against a handicap rights treaty because it carries the nightmare dread of blue helmets riding black helicopters sweeping into your home sc
for gay marriage equality or against efforts to deny it. the issue that just eight years ago was used to deny victory to a democratic presidential candidate, john kerry, is now this country's majority opinion. well, something here has stirred but what is it in what has shifted the grunt tw-thirds against smement marriage to more than 50% for it in compassion, common sense, idea fatigue? the inability of opponents to specify a single argument against it or is it the sheer number of declarations to family, friends, co-workers and public by so many people that they are gay? is this why owe so many americans have changed their mind on marriage equality? in any case tonight a major break through in the conservative ranks. our guest clark cooper, president of the log cabin republicans, and joan walsh of salon.com. let's take a look at something that george will said this weekend and the question is has the opposition of gay marriage softened even along conservative. take a look at what mr. will said this weekend. let's watch it. >> this decision by the supreme court came 31 days after an el
. joining me now is joan walsh of salon and david corn of mother jones. thank you both for joining us. here's what norm wornstooen told "the huffington post" about the broadcast networks. i can't recall a campaign where i've seen more lying going on and it wasn't si mettic, but it seemed pretty clear to me that the republican campaign was just far more over the top. that's the unreported big story of american politics. if voters are going to be able to hold accountable political figures they've got to know what is going on. and if the story is they're all equally to blame, you're doing a disservice to voters and not doing what journalism is supposed to do. on "hardball" we were on the republicans throughout the primaries and during the general election. take a look at this look back. >> the crazy right rears its head. let's play "hardball." >> i didn't know there was a line between joe stalin and barney frank. >> because there's not. >> now comes this republican candidate in missouri todd akin talking about legitimate rape and spouting some cave man theory that sex which is forced cannot re
be for a little while and it's probably to the democrats' advantage anyway. they'll say the republicans pushed us over the cliff in the first place and by the way, now that eve gone over the cliff, about 70% of the deficit would take care of it if we stay over the cliff at least. you know, i take dana's reference to lord of the flies. it's really more like a monkey's wedding or something out there, the disarray in the republican party. >> i have never been to one of those actually. >> well, you can imagine the confusion. yeah. but it's the ideologues versus the pragmatists. the pragmatists simply want to serve their donor base. that's why they don't want to raise taxes on the rich but the ideologues have a different game altogether. they want to bring down government basically. >> well, you can't watch the game without a scorecard. here is some more of the people on the pragma side and it's an unusual shaping up. bill kristol is leading the criticism, that the republican needs a come to jesus moment. he writes, it may be major parts of american conservatism have become sauch racket that a kind of
as much as you protect the top 2%. some of them will learn how to quote dr. king's dream. others of us will be fighting to fulfill it. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> racket on the right. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this racket on the right. that's what bill kristol calls the far right fringe, a racket. >> and cat of tough talking types that goes off the cliff. what's exposed this rift is the fiscal cliff the united states faces this january 1st. the hard righters are attacking any sign of compromise as a white flag of retreat. who is going to come out the winner in this fight? the people who make money pulling conservatives to the hard right or the people who believe conservative officeholders like liberal officeholders have a real stake in making the government work. a far bigger question, will the war on the right help the country unite and avoid the fiscal cliff or will it give the right a chance to bring the house down. with me is ron reagan and dana milbank of the "wash
can't just be denied liberty. your thoughts on that issue and how that can be used in the constitution. >> that's exactly right. and there is no state interest to deny our citizens and the plaintiffs in this case the fundamental right to marriage. you know, chris, often times we get lost a bit when we're talking about these things, talking about the politics and the law, but at the end of the day there are fundamental lives at stake. when we filed this case, chris and sandy and jeff and paul had been together for ten years. now they have been together for almost 12, over 13 years. chris and sandy's twin boys were just entering high school. when this case is heard, they will be getting ready to graduate from high school. their moms deserve the same freedom to marry just as everyone else has in this country. and in this country we don't deny a certain portion of our citizens a fundamental right. we just don't. it's not american. >> isn't it true that when we had this in the court in the ninth in the appellate level, nobody came forward because nobody could come up with what you call a ju
